Pours a hazy, copper color. Two inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, slight pine, sweet malt, slight alcohol, hint of caramel malt, and hint of sugar. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, slight pale malt, hops, pine, slight caramel malt, and sugar. Overall, good appearance and aroma.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

On tap at the brewery.
A clear amber ale with a durable bone-colored head. Excellent lacing.

Feel: Relatively smooth up front with a crisp, dry finish.

Bitterness kicks up in the finish and lingers on in the grapefruit-rind flavored aftertaste. Some malt flavor with little [it seems] balancing sweetness.

O: a fine-looking, West Coast style IPA.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, copper-toffee coloring with a thin, low profile, white head. Nose of rich caramel and toffee in the backbone, with a floral hops note, light citrus highlights, and a subtle bitterness throughout. Flavors are richly sweet and tangy forward, with a tart citrus and pepper spiced highlight. Balanced with a solid malt profile, leading to a tangy, slightly resinous aftertaste. The beer is mid-bodied, almost light, and slightly effervesced, with a jumbled, tangy, slightly dry finish. Not bad.

Had this one during my buddy’s bachelor party! Tick all day, every day! Served from tap into a Samuel Adams sampler shaker. Poured golden yellow with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, earth, earth hop, and spicy hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, fruit hop, citrus, citrus hop, earth, and floral hop. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. I really liked this one as it brought a level of complexity that I was not expecting based on the aroma. The citrus was quite a nice surprise upon taking my first sip. The floral was a nice touch as well. All of this made it quite drinkable and enjoyable. I could have easily drank a full pint of this one, but I had plenty of ticking to do this evening.

Comes out of the tap an opaque, cloudy honey golden with a fairly thick pale honey head. In fact, it looks a lot like honey, real honey fresh from the hive. Hoppy aroma has a sweet honey-like overtone and a nice evergreen note. Flavor - woo wee, seriously hoppy, very evergreen, with a sweet undertone and just a little bitterness. Full-bodied texture is quite rough and fizzy, leaving behind a hoppy, tingly, slightly honey-sweet finish. Recommended!

12oz bottle

A- Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a nice off-white head with good retention and lacing. 

S- The aroma is faint malt and citrusy hops. The aroma is surprisingly faint for an IPA. 

T- The taste is dominated by the citrusy hops, there is not much of a malt presence. 

M- The mouthfeel is light bodied with a high amount of carbonation.

O- Overall, I was a little disappointed with this IPA. It is lacking a bit compared to some of the better IPAs on the shelves.

Thanks to Yulles for bringing me this little guy for picking him up a beer during a local release. Not necessary but appreciated! 12 oz. bottle into glass.

Pour is IPA gold with a fair amount of particle mass distributed throughout the IPA column. Nose is mostly floral hops with a distant background of citrus. A touch malty.

Hoplanta is that cruelest of creatures: the balanced IPA. A big malt bill siezes the tongue immediately, bringing bread & sweetness. Mid-sentence there are hops, light, floral, pretty. Gentle. They do stick around though, all the way through & deep into the aftertaste. As befits a beer presumedly made for a blazing Hotlanta summer, this is easy to sip.

A beer that seems to have been brewed to be middle-road & inoffensive, it succeeds on both counts. Decent enough.

Slightly cloudy amber in color. Forms a modest sticky white head. Good retention for what does form. Copious lacing. Aroma is a blend of caramel malts, bitter citrus and pine hops. Taste is more of the same. Rather bitter. Citrus zest, citrus pith. Maybe a little pine. Caramel malt. Medium body. Aggressive bitterness, bordering on soapy. A rather hoppy and bitter east coast style IPA.
